Hello Project Managers, What is “Lessons Learnt” or “Learning from Experience”?Is it about transferring relevant knowledge of an individual to the many?
Is it about “Experience is the best teacher”, and so we should always capture our important experiences and teach them to others?
Is it about not repeating mistakes of the past but repeating its successes?
Is it about collecting the individual tacit knowledge of the organization and transient them into the organization’s wisdom?
Personally I think it all of the above and more.
So my question is do you apply “Learning from Experience” in your organization? If so, how do you do it?

We really need to talk about knowledge..
November 28, 2012 at 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM Crowne Plaza Reading
This event requires registration: http://www.apm.org.uk/event/we-really-need-talk-about-knowledge-knowledge-sig-courageous-conversations-event
How do we know what it means to manage a project? In this APM Knowledge SIG Courageous Conversations event, Dr Jon Whitty and Dr Judy Payne invite you to challenge preconceptions about project management knowledge.
Project management knowledge. Knowledge about project management. What is it? Where is it? Who creates it? When is it needed? Why is it important? Where is it used? Who owns it? These are some of the most difficult questions to answer about project management knowledge.
This interactive and stimulating event will address these questions and explore how our preconceptions about knowledge affect the way we feel and act; the role of professional associations; and how knowledge about project management develops – or doesn’t.
Please don’t expect definitive answers. This event is one strand of a conversation that we hope will lead to new concepts, new language, and better understanding of the issues relating to project management knowledge. It’s our profession. We want to encourage a greater confidence in the APM community to talk freely and fearlessly about new ways forward. Are you brave enough to join in?

  1. Another great post…
    Catherine: I am currently researching the effectiveness of lessons learnt reviews within organisations. I have heard conflicting opinions about the value and use that these bring to project based businesses and project teams. Please share your experience, views and best practice
